Foreword

It was November 3, 1992. President George Bush Senior had just done a good job of doing very little right in his campaign for a second term. A loud-mouthed Ross Perot managed to capture just enough votes, by proclaiming that he would clean up Washington, to make a mess of things. And before you knew it the era of Reagan was gone. William Jefferson Clinton took his baggage of lies, corruption and sex offenses into the White House to defile Washington in a new and unique fashion.

Those of us who were Reagan Republicans were angry and devastated. I was beside myself. I remember soon after we were having a discussion about religion and politics in Sunday school. When I brought up my contention that Christians should be involved in society and making a difference one young man asserted with all the authority he could muster up, "We need to focus on heavenly things!" as if the affairs of men are no concern to God. At the same time this same church was busily formulating an inclusive theology in order to conform to President Clinton's efforts to normalize homosexuality and give special rights to gays.

It was not long before I turned to Vanessa to complain about a society and church that would have sunk to such lows as to elect such a scoundrel. She could see my helplessness and responded, "So write a book."

This simple phrase changed the course of the next eight years of my life. I ended out spending the bulk of my free time during the Clinton Presidency logging down current events and researching subjects such as religion, politics and US/Western History to get to the bottom of the matter.

Out of this intense time came five books that I put under the umbrella of the title Gray Matter. The idea was that people ought to put their minds into action and think about what they are doing rather than just doing what the "feel" is right. For years this book has set on my shelf unpublished. It was just too long!

And then it was, in April of 2012, after more than a decade that I decided to dust off the pages and read the book once again. As I was once thumbing through those pages that I began writing nearly 20 years before I came to the realization that the story was really about a house divided. America is besieged by an malevolent faction that is driving us all apart, American against American -- Christian against Christian. As I delved deeper in this discovery I suddenly realized that if these evil doers are allowed to continue with their divisive schemes unchecked that our nation is doomed!

But thanks to the wonders of the internet and self-publishing I have finally been able to release the results of this intense effort. In wandering through these pages penned decades ago I have found that they explain a lot of what we see going on in America and the world today. As it turned out, the volumes of literature wound out being a prophecy of sorts as what I discovered was unveiling in our culture has finally come to pass.

With that in mind, I pray that the revelations that I uncovered during those morally dark times in American history will prove of benefit to you as well. So read on and take the journey that transformed my thinking regarding who God is and how He relates to individuals and the nations.

The first book looks into a pivotal moment in American history that changed the world forever. It was a time when the United States was on the brink of destruction. It was and era when an American prophet and patriot stood up to eco the words of Christ: "A house divided cannot stand." Today we live in a similar era today where America is torn asunder between truth and error.

May God bless your endeavors to find the truth.

 

Warning

This book is for those who intend to take holiness seriously. To get anything out of it you must resolve to be decisive in your view of God. If you are into playing church games or filling a pew with just another cold body, then you must be ready to change your stance. If you embrace the theology of the modernists who enables you to be the center of your own life, then you should be ready to modify your opinion. If you deny the reality of the absolutes initiated by God from the foundation of the world, then you will have to change your mind. If you are of the persuasion that the interpretation of Scripture is a matter of opinion, then you will need to correct your view. If you think that morality is a matter that is subject to the whims of each individual, then I would have to wonder why you picked up this book to begin with!

If everything is relative in your mind, then there is nothing we have to talk about. . . unless you are willing to consider something that will challenge your entire belief system.

Now you can call it arrogant and opinionated if you want, but the views of this book come from a conviction that transcends my own personal views: it is predicated on a higher authority. If you, on the other hand, are one of those who insist that truth is relative then you have no authority beyond yourself; for it is according to yourself that you would measure everything that you believe in.

* * *

Now, before we progress any further, I owe it to you to offer another warning. You see, I am an avid fan of the cartoon strip Calvin and Hobbes.

If you were not reading my book this would not be a problem. However, since you are, you must understand from the very beginning that you will be intermittently subjected to the perceptive wisdom of this wild and mischievous tot. These instances will occur without any notice. They will pop unto the page without any warning, to bewilder anyone who would become a critique of this "very long book." And now is time to allow Calvin to interject. You have been warned.

* * *

Calvin is laying down, bemused over his current chore. In walks dad who announces, "OK Calvin, let's check over you math homework."

"Let's not and say we did," the procrastinator replies.

It's time for the boy to get up and get serious as dad demands, "Your teacher says you need to spend more time on it. Have a seat."

"More time?!" Calvin protests. "I already spent ten whole minutes on it! Ten minutes shot! Wasted! Down the drain!"

Father will not be dissuaded. As his son slinks down in disgust he begins, "You've written 8 + 4 = 7. Now you know that's not right."

"So I was off a little bit. Sue me."

"You can't add things that come out with less than you started with!"

Now Calvin is perched up high. With his one fist shaking while his other hand points to himself, he blurts, "I can do that! It's a free country! I've got my rights!"

* * *

The reasoning of those who think that rights and freedom is license to "do your own thing" just doesn't add up! But people in our society are not use to hearing someone come out and say that there is only one way of doing things. We are a nationality who is mostly concerned about rights. We believe that if someone wants to believe or act in a particular way, that he has a "right" to do it. Someone who comes out to declare that another is wrong is subject to insults and labels that brand him as un-loving, bigoted, hateful, rebellious, and definitely un-Christian. It's the way we think today!

* * *

"The more you know, the harder it is to take decisive action," Calvin, the youthful philosopher, interjects as his attentive friend stares in utter amazement.

"Once you become informed, you start seeing complexities and shades of gray," Calvin continues with his hand resting on the open book that has drawn his attention.

Then with arms extend outward in order to underline his point, "You realize that nothing is as clear and simple as it first appears. Ultimately, knowledge is paralyzing."

"Being a man of action, I can't afford to take the risk," the astute logician concludes as he throws the book away in utter delight.

This has left his tiger friend with his head resting on his hand while peering up in space to assure his associate, "You're ignorant, but at least you act on it."

* * *

So they say that "ignorance is bliss." This unfortunately has been written into the constitution of the body of Christ. And what is it they have made themselves purposely unaware of? What book has been thrown out the door? It is the very piece of literature that rests on their laps every Sunday morning in church. It is the Bible, the Word of God, the document that was written by the hand of God to instruct them of who He is and how He can be related to.

Why is this so? How can it be that I have the audacity to say that the Bible is being ignored even as it is being read throughout our country; daily by everyone from pastors to laymen?

The answer lies in those two words, "I think." America, and Christians in particular have forgotten what it is like to believe in absolutes. Everything is seen as it is compared to the environment or whatever else is convenient enough to allow them to do whatever they want. We look at the Bible in our own way now. Nothing is as easy to comprehend since that we have progressed in our knowledge. They ought to come out with the "gray letter addition" to the Good Book, for that is how we see it in this age.

"The Bible is full of complexities," they say, "and filled with shades of gray, making it seem far less clear and simple as we once thought it to be." Yes, the approach of Calvin has been administered by those who feel they can no longer take the risk of black-and-white.

If you are one of those out there who believes that all knowledge, reality, and morality are subject to each man's interpretation, may I share with you a story from my own childhood? The neighborhood in which I grew up in was filled with primarily young boys. (Apparently, we were not an equal-opportunity community.) In spite of this affront to the Women's Lib movement, the situation provided some good team sports for this group of guys who lived to play ball. Most of the time, we would pursue whichever sport was in fashion at the moment -- the most daring being tackle football.

Now this endeavor was pursued barefoot and in shorts to wherever our imagination would lead us. We bashed our shins on the brass sprinkler heads at our local elementary school to the thrill of receiving that touchdown pass. We broke our toes on the pavement of the street if we wanted to. We were the Knoxville Knockers and we were ready for any challenge that awaited us.

Now there was one boy in our group who just didn't seem to have a grip on the rules of the game. Basically, he made the regulations up as he went along. So, in those rare times when we actually played touch football, if he lodged a great run only to be "touched" by an opponent, he would invariably come up with an unknown rule that would invalidate the efforts of those who opposed him.

"You can't just touch me with your fingertips," he would say in order to enlighten us all. "It has got to be with the palm of your hands!" And so this scenario went on-and-on as we became familiarized with the complexities of the game as it proceeded.

Eventually, though we got wind of what was going on. "Gee, guys, do you think he is doing this so that he can win?" we thought. "Is this nut doing his own thing -- making up the rules to allow him to do whatever he wants?"

With this revelation in our hip pocket, the jig was up. The boy lost his credibility. You see, since he refused to acknowledge that there was one set of rules to abide by, it was determined that he should have nothing to say about them at all. His opinion was worthless, for it was founded upon his own desires rather than any particular authority.

This is exactly what the stance is for the modernist today who insists that there are no black-and-whites. They are "doing their own thing" -- and by the virtue of that one fact, they have made themselves by their own definition incapable of coming up with moral judgments.

 . . . And yet they continue to do exactly that. They make value judgments on the Biblical Christian who asserts emphatically that the ungodly are sinners.

But who in the situation is in a position to make a judgment call: the one who quotes a higher authority and insists that it is the only moral right for all mankind, or the one who contends morality is an individual matter?

The modernists insist that it is their "right" to judge and evaluate any group of people or past national hero they desire. They uphold the contention that abortion and homosexuality are OK, that there is nothing wrong with open and free sex, that the one who believes there is a difference in the sexes is a chauvinist pig, that the rich are filled with greed, that riots are OK when done in the name of "social injustice" in an "unfair" capitalistic system that "favors" a few, and so on and so on. Yet if their judgment by their own definition is no more than a "differing opinion" then of what value is it? The answer is: absolutely none.

If you want someone to fix your car, you won't to take it to a lawyer. If you need brain surgery, you would shun at consulting a television repair man. So why is it that it is the a-moralist, who contends there are no absolutes, that society approaches to find out the answers in moral decisions?

To find the answers for those daily situations that are far less important than the future of our society, we consult an expert in the field. Yet we go to someone who has designated himself a know nothing to tell us about such the subjects as religion, morality, and values.

Rather than doing this, the prudent one should proceed to an expert; the one Western Society has looked to for moral guidance from its beginning -- the man of The Word who has proved himself to be obedient to God's commands. He is the one capable of performing the brain surgery that Americans are so desperately in need of at this very hour.

So, if you happen to be one of those a-moralists -- one of those who deny the presence of absolutes -- then you might consider that reading on is the choice that is most consistent with your position! You will then have the opportunity to hear the multitude of voices of the past: those who made Christianity into the religion that has dominated Western civilization for two thousand years. You will be seeing how God has interacted with man during the course of his stay on earth, and how the truth of God's principles of LAW and its consequences has been consistently maintained throughout the course of history.

You will experience the Word of the One who is the foremost expert of all. He is the Creator who wrote the book on morality. Listen, and discover truth.
